Sold by Natalie Tink for $950,000 on 29 January 2021
When agent Natalie Tink listed the eclectic rural property at 67 Mount Eerwah Road, Eerwah Vale, she knew the interest would be high, what she didn’t realise was just how high and how far the reach would be!
Given the uniqueness of the tranquil 2.5-acre property, Natalie encouraged the owners to take it to auction in order to ensure the best sale price for her clients.
“When I sat down to do a market appraisal with the owners it was really tricky to put a price on it,” says Natalie. “This home looked like it had come straight off the set of a movie. It is very eclectic and I had nothing to compare it to. The last thing we wanted to do was put a price on it and undersell the property so the best course of action was to let the market dictate how much it was going to sell for.”
And boy did it deliver.
“We were bombarded within 45 minutes of the property being listed on realestate.com,” says Natalie. “Not only that, but we received enquiries from all parts of Australia. I wasn’t surprised at the interest from the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane but I was getting people wanting to buy site-unseen from all around the country. I couldn’t keep up with it.”
In fact, the property didn’t even make it to auction, with two offers being made at the first open home.
“We had buyers enquiring about the property within minutes but people had to wait two weeks to come through the property as the owners were preparing it for sale,” says Natalie. “Within the first walk through we took two offers to the owner and they accepted the second one.”
According to Natalie, the sale price well exceeded the owner’s expectations and needless to say, they were delighted with the result.
“It sold for $950,000,” says Natalie. “People competitively came forward with their offers to secure the property. The new owners knew what they wanted and they made sure their offer reflected that.”
It’s a win, win situation for both the vendors and the buyers too, with both parties moving for lifestyle reasons.
“As a result of the sale price, the owners are now able to purchase a property by the ocean, which has always been a dream of theirs. The people who bought it are coming from Brisbane with their young family in mind and wanted somewhere they could retreat to. It’s just so quiet and peaceful, you wouldn’t know anybody was there,” says Nat.
Apart from the property itself attracting a huge amount of interest due to its peaceful location, Natalie says it’s also sign of the times, with a buoyant market ensuring quick sales with great results.
“The market is great at the moment,” says Natalie. “Our biggest issue right now is more buyers than there are properties. If you are thinking of selling, now is the time.”
